IMetadataAware Interface

.NET Framework 4.6 and 4.5

Defines a method that must be implemented by classes that are metadata-aware.

Namespace:  System.Web.ModelBinding
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

public interface IMetadataAware

The IMetadataAware type exposes the following members.

Public methodOnMetadataCreatedEnables metadata-aware attributes to perform required processing of metadata after the metadata is created.

This interface enables attributes to contribute to the process of creating model metadata without requiring a custom metadata provider. It is used by the AssociatedMetadataProvider class, so this behavior is automatically inherited by all classes that derive from the AssociatedMetadataProvider class (notably the DataAnnotationsModelMetadataProvider class).

.NET Framework

Supported in: 4.6, 4.5
